The Ways Out

by harark - Jam Entry

A cell. Who are you? Why are you here? How will you leave?

Controls: Mouse

Made by myself and two others in Construct 2. All of the assets were made by us except some of the sounds.

Update: Added a few lines of text and made some graphical changes.

Very interesting concept! Very Games4Change like!

I don't think it is fun! Which in Harark case means it is a good thing because the game is better for it!
The game manages to get you to understand isolation and when you do you win (Lose)!
With little to do but look out the window, count the days, eat take your pills and sleep you quickly understand that the only thing in your favor is perseverance, once thats gone, that's it.

The graphics are consistent and get the job done.
The final piece of art is kinda gruesome but it's supposed to be (works).
There's some replay value since there are different endings.

Great Audio!

No one finds a way out.
At first I was really confused(in a good way), but the atmosphere grew on me, cool game!

Wow, such atmospheric audio! Also, I like how you can advance time by "doing" the timekeeping.

Haven't found a way out yet. The narration set in just as I thought I had a way out, and now it's really holding me captive. Pun intended. :)

I really like the backstory and the sound effects in the game. Your team created a very atmospheric and interesting little game. Good job!

Very cool! At first, I was a bit thrown off by the graphics, but after a while, it grew on me. It has a unique atmosphere for sure!

Well done!

Great game. Shuffling things around for the day to day and keeping your strength up was a fun way to do it. I like your take on the theme. Nice work!

Confusing at first, but I still played all the way through. Nice little thing.

I'm not good at Escape games so I was lost at the beggining, a text tutorial would help maybe? Is this your first game? Well done.

Really simplistic and really addictive! Took me a minute to figure out that I needed to hold the mouse down and the art could've used some polish but other than that, great submission!

Well done!

Great entry. Sound effects were great. The atmosphere is amazing. The prisoner's sprite was weird, but everything else was pretty good.
